Md. public school teacher denies he told students all Muslims are terrorists
by Ovetta Wiggins
Prince George's County school administrators are investigating allegations that an English teacher told students at Parkdale High School that all Muslims are terrorists who "will kill you."
The teacher — Anthony Fonebi, who has been with the school system since 2003 — denied that he said anything derogatory, saying in an interview Friday that the situation was a misunderstanding and a classroom discussion was "blown out of proportion."
The discussion came at the end of an 11th-grade class on Sept. 18, and students later reported it to school officials and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the country's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization. CAIR on Friday asked the school system to take disciplinary action against the teacher, to protect the students who spoke up from retaliation and to provide sensitivity and diversity training to the school's faculty and student body.
